I'm not yet familiar enough with the product to talk about improvements but one aspect that comes to mind from what I've seen is that sometimes it's easy to get lost given the number of images the solution opens up when you click on the mouse and the amount of different tabs. It might be easy for someone to lose their way around the system. But no real complaints, so far so good. Previously we had what you call a multiple document interface so that whatever you do, you're still within the same container. You could look at the same kind of environment where you don't have to jump between different windows. You can split a window if you need to get to some other bit of information in the system. You leave your window, and then reference that information on the same window as opposed to jumping to another window. Otherwise, you end up with too many windows and they get cluttered. It becomes hard to navigate around.

Improving it just like the features in Google Dialogflow and Small Talk. If these features were also in IBM Watson Studio that would work for us.

The product is already really great but for most researchers or a person like me, there are few templates to try something new. So we're limited. Also, I think to make the most of Watson Studio the user interface needs to be improved. For the developer or the engineer, it could be very easy to use but to a person or a text analyzer, they could have some problems using it. So a better user interface could be very helpful

When I'm exploring the data and it takes me to another page, when I want to return to my workflow, it returns me to the first step. I'm not sure if this is typical but it was my experience. It would be great to make it easier to explore the data and complete the workflow using the same method. More features in data virtualization would be helpful. The solution could use an interactive dashboard that could make exploration easier.

For now, we're using the light edition which is free but I'm sure once we decide to go commercial with it, we will pay some license for it.

It will come down again to cost. Some of the solutions are really good solutions but they can be a little too costly for many. I think a lot of software vendors have considered having special pricing for African countries. After the deployment in Johannesburg, I tried to pitch it to a local Telco because I felt they needed it. They couldn't do it based on the pricing. They felt the price is just too high.
